6:07 pm
the heat on the last defensive series but humber the first to meet karim short of the goal line. >> brian: then the swarming of the bodies. one thing you will get from a rob or rex ryan-coached defense is ta. you can see kenny paying the price. that's what happens when you stick your nose in it literally on the goal line. >> thom: the new quarterback takes over for the saints. penalty flag down. on his feet. robinson had an outstanding training camp. their leading rusher in the preseason. >> referee: holding, number 70, offense. half the distance to the goal. second down. >> thom: marcel jones , backup right tackle, whistled for holding to bring it back. >> brian: many times you see a play bounce outside like that. that will bring about the holding penalty . he got hold of it.

6:10 pm
next step. are you feeling the pressure? >> i put a lot of pressure on myself. as much as anybody out there could put on me. i have high expectations. we'll take it a game at a time. go out and play. >> i heard you say one game at a time. i will take you right to the super bowl. i did hear what you said. but when it comes to the next step that seems to be the three words swirling around on the outside. how much do you feel it on the inside? >> that's the next step in our progression as an organization is to take the next step, win a championship. that's where the focus is. at this point in the year, we have to focus on week one. it's a long season. that's our goal. anything short of that is failure. >> good to see you. thank you so much. have a great season. thom? >> thom: thank you. matt schaub, thank you. pierre wood check s in for the first time.

team the scouts love this part of the season. this part of preseason. it's a chance for their guy to make the team. >> thom: yates. hand it is football to johnson. it was interesting asking sean payton, they are two days from the next cut. then you make the final cut leading up to the open ing of the regular season. were you at all surprised by what he told us h he did recently with his staff and general manager? >> no. i like the idea. they put them in three columns. yes, absolutely going to make it. only 30, 35 guys. then there are a handful that, no, these guys won't make it. then you have about 10 to 15 guys in the middle column. some of them are there because of injury. as we say with colston, he'll be there. no question. you don't have to look
6:13 pm
at 90 guys and say who will make it, who's not. i have broken it down to the middle column of guys that now in a half like this if i'm sean payton, i guarantee he knows the names on the middle column and that's what he's looking at now. >> thom: the rookie out of georgia tech. number 38, rod sweeting. they have been impressed with the way he's played. rookie tight end out of yukon. boy, they really liked him. big man. they were surprised how athletic he is. >> brian: as they said, they are a 12 personnel or two tight end personnel group. they lost james casey to free agency.

6:18 pm
jets. crossing pattern. wide open hanging onto it this time is lemon. good for that young man. he dropped one a moment ago. got another chance. that's a touchdown. >> brian: that's important. the fact that you can see a kid that drops the ball and comes back to make the play. that's pretty good. rob ryan shaking his head. it's tough with this group in the second half. those type of plays, the sneak route underneath by a wide receiver that tends to escape a defense that's just trying to line up, see if they are where they are supposed to be. trying to be physical enough to make the team. >> thom: the point after is good. a one-point good. saints 24, texans 23. a touchdown catch by alex le mon. you ready to play madden 25? no, i promised my son i would school him first. but he's asleep, i think the poor kid's a little scared.

6:24 pm
there are many out there now on defense trying to do the same thing. parker on the end around. parker is an interesting guy. that was a guy who was in the news. some of you may remember. the bengals initially brought him in. then rahim morris at the time and the tampa bay buccaneers sort of manoeuvred away to snatch him away from the bengals who were very upset about it. he came in and played well for the buccaneers. said i didn't have the passion for football that i uh should have had. they turned him loose. now he says he loves the game more than any time in his career and trying to win a spot on the saints roster. that will be the final play of the third quarter. a one-point spread as we are off to the fourth. the fox nfl preseason special continues after the break from your local fox station.

sean payton at the top of the screen talking to the side judge over there. >> brian: the side judge didn't make it i up. you know, sean payton talked about he's got to get back in the groove having been out of it for a year. i don't know why you would call time-out in that situation. you call it they're going to put it in. >> thom: so that will be officially the end of the third quarter. 24-23 saints. we'll keep it right here and give you a chance to hear laura okmin visit with a special defender from east texas. >> j.j. watt, 20 and a half sacks. i'm curious what you think is more impressive from your defensive player of the year.
6:28 pm
>> the quarterbacks are so mobile i would say the sacks. i think the run plays are harder than anything. those are what i'm proud of. >> people say you are redefining the position. we are see ing things a defensive lineman shouldn't be able to do. what are you doing? >> just playing hard. you have seen it before. people told me when i first got here the end zone makes plays. you create new standards and set new heights there is no limit to what you can do. i'm always setting new goals. >> i know you will hate that i do this. one thing that's harder to do than lining up against j.j. watt is getting you to talk about the wonderful things you do. you do a lot. that included a deadly fire in texas a few monthsing ago. four firefighters were killed. about 14 more injured. i know you did amazing things for survivors and families. can you tell me about it? >> you know, my dad is a firefighter. my uncle is a

firefighter. it was close to my heart when it happened. we lost four great -- three great men and one great woman. i went to the hospital. captain dowling is in critical condition still. his wife said there were three units that helped save her husband's life. we had a nice steak dinner. a chance for them for me on behalf of the city of houston to say thank you for their services. like i said before, i play a game. i come out and tons of people watch me play. those men and women put their lives on the line every day. they don't get credit they deserve. i try to use my platform to give them credit they deserve. >> you are a fantastic player and better person. thank you. >> thank you very much. go texans. >> thom: i know we all say thank you for what you did for the familied
